Obstetrics Info for Whānau

Obstetric information for whānau

Welcome to the National Obstetric Anaesthestists’ group’s information page for New Zealand whānau. Here you’ll find resources and links to information about obstetrics and anaesthesia.

How we help

As a parent there are many choices you can make for your whānau: from conception, through birth, breastfeeding and beyond. About 65% of pregnant NZ people elect or require the services of an anaesthetist during labour.
NOA and NZSA hope that by providing you with information on some of the choices where Anaesthetists might be involved that we can help you feel confident when the time comes to making those decisions.
